Yeah i'm there with you on that list, i don't understand it, only because...well...where did the list come from? every place i mentioned before were ones i had actually gone to and made sure were actually still alive... My only point on what i personally had posted was the fact that i have heard from many canadian friends that there are no places for them to buy electronics from other then amazon and newegg, and that has always bugged me when that is said simply because i know that is untrue. The fact that you guys are, in general, overpriced, is an issue. It's an issue in every place it is done, specifically, if there is no reason for it, such as import costs and whatnot to drive up the cost. AKA, USD. And quite frankly, aside from some computer components, gold as well. Gold may be physical, but its price is purely based off of desire value. But USD (and many other currencies) are not based off of gold, or anything, for that matter. The paper money is worthless by itself, the coins are borderline worthless by themselves other then scrap value. Overall, money itself does not have any value, it only has a desire value. As to the rest of your comments, i would say you are mostly correct if it were just like the previous times bitcoin rose in value. Bitcoin has crashed, what, 3 times? Those previous times, no much else had any value or interest at all. It's not just bitcoin this time. It would require every single cryptocurrency to crash and burn for what you're saying will happen, happen. And if bitcoin crashes, i'm sure it'll take some with it, but all? We've already seen in the recent, relative crash where bitcoin went from 20K to around 13K, that affected a lot of coins, but not all. Decred, as an example, is at an all time high and continues to increase. Siacoin, another example, is skyrocketing in value. Those are only two coins, what about the other 1300+? I'm not saying what you're saying "won't" happen, the problem is, there's no point trying to predict a future you can't predict. There's no point for you saying it'll end, and there's no point for me saying it definitely won't. Put simply, no one knows what will or won't happen. If they did, specifically the nay sayers, bitcoin would have crashed last march, never gone past 1K, died in 2011, etc. etc. etc. It's completely pointless to say one way or another what will or won't happen.
